  1. Yes they are going back to the set date and time screen. All settings are back to factory it seems.
  2. I have three p41's and all three have been resetting back to original settings after being out . It's not happening every time and they sometimes still have good battery levels when picked up. Any ideas what might be going on?
  3. I've got a couple more that I'm going to hack and I will use the 30 wire if I can find some. Is the larger wire on the board side of the servos used just so it has less chance of breaking from handling? I see you are from Sussex County NJ. I spent 2 months in Linden this fall and have to go back out for at least 2 1/2 more in Jan. Let me tell you for an ole country boy like me that is like a whole other world there.
  4. Looking at cam from the back I ran them out just left of the power on green light. As far as the wires I'm not 100% sure but used the 20-22 gauge stripper on my pliers. I did add just a very small amount of solder but it was not humped up at all. The case does close it's just tight and I had to squeeze together to get the screws in.
  5. After installing the shutter assembly on my new p41 and putting a piece of electrical tape over it the case is much tighter getting closed. Would that be the SA hitting or the wiring coming out and will it cause a problem?
  6. Well I found a p41 online refurbished for $30 and ordered it and some shutter assemblies from Snapshot. Got the camera and it looks new. I opened it up and done the hack with no problems. Got it hooked up to the board and everything works fine. Thanks for all the help trying to get my other one going again. I think it was time for that one to be retired.
  7. Shutter assembly is no good for sure now. I did check the other fuses with no luck. The camera will not take a picture now with everything loose from the board. I have three more cameras on the way. I've ordered shutter assemblies from Gary. I sure wish I had jumped on Johnnies case and supplies since I will have a couple extra cameras now. I may have to try a complete build from the start now.

  9. Opened it up again. Located the fuse that in the picture is marked lcd. Wow are they super small. With the camera on I jumped the fuse with tweezers. Lcd did not light up but it actually turned the camera off. I may have also touched something else in there to cause that. If it is a fuse I'm pretty sure my skills are not good enough to solder a jumper wire. I think with all the opening up and moving the shutter assembly it is broke now. I will check on that later. I'm thinking it may be time to find someone to try and fix this thing or maybe find another p41 altogether.
  10. With the cam on and shining the flashlight from all angles it is still just black. I'm pretty sure the back half was good from the parts cam. If I remember right it just got to where it would not power up.
  11. I did swap out the back half with no change. Ruined one of them by breaking the black locking tab. Wasn't even while trying to lift it but rather pushing it down. No luck with the reset button either.
  12. I wired it all back and it appears to be working now as far as taking a pic with motion. I changed out the electrical tape that was on it from before and now I'm wondering if it was shorting out there the whole time. Somewhere in the opening it up and closing several times the lcd board is now not working. I do have a parts camera that I can swap out the ribbon if thats what it is. I'll have to do some research here and figure out which one it is and how to do it. Fix one thing and break another. Maybe this cam just isn't meant to be. I really do appreciate everyones help. I went ahead and cleaned and reset both ends of the larger ribbon that connects the two camera halves together plus the other one that is easy to get to but still no screen.
  13. So what should I look for now?
  14. I opened up the camera again tonite and shorted the power and common and the camera turned on. I then shorted the power and shutter and it took a picture. This tells me that there is nothing wrong with the shutter assembly ribbon being set wrong correct?
  15. Ok wired to above. I got the o to p, g to c, s to s off the snapshot sniper page for wiring a p41. Camera now acts just as it did when I first posted. Senses motion and turns on but no picture.
